Answered By: 
The Mayor

Since its first meeting on 12 May 2014, the Harrow Safer Neighbourhood Board (SNB) has met twice in May and July.  The Board structure includes a Chair, a Vice Chair and representatives from Victim Support and Harrow Youth Parliament.  In the first six months of its development, Board members have been focusing on developing strategies to engage with the wider community.  In September, the Board attended and had a stall at the Harrow Under One Sky event, which provided an initial first engagement opportunity.  Over the next few months, the Board are looking at how to broaden their engagement with Harrow residents, for example, by ensuring information about the Board is made available on the Harrow Council website. The Board intends to hold its first public meeting in early 2015.
